White Phos, as described by a SASC Officer.

"White Phos munitions are excellent for screening purposes and have some secondary effects of which you are well aware."

It makes thick white smoke, and also has some secondary effects (of which we are well aware).

If you are unlucky enough to become even more aware of the secondary effects, apply a wet field dressing, or a dry field dressing, depending on which version of the BCD Aide Mémoire you have been issued with.
